Now unfortunately, with how long our door is and how close our bike rack is to our vehicle, we're not going to have full access into our back hatch area, but we will have a good amount of access where if we had somebody else hold the door, we can still get stuff in and out if we need to. We'll close that up. Then to put our bike rack back into place, we'll simply lift up until it clicks. As for how our bike rack is secured down here at the back we have a rack string strap, we're just going to pull up on the red button, and then it actually wraps it down using the black portion here.

Toyota 4Runner Bike Rack Questions

  • Yes. The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Mounted Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Black, # RKY1201, is compatible with all of the the Rola Sport Series Cross Bars like # 59898 as long as the crossbar spread is between 24 and 43 inches. I've attached a review video of this bike rack for you. The BrassKnuckles will carry one bike up to 45 lbs securely without touching the frame of the bike. I recommend getting the Lock Cores for RockyMounts Bike Carriers - Qty 2, # RKY0332, to secure...

  • Some combinations of bike and bike rack will be more likely than others to need addition of a bike adapter bar like # UB01. The Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02457 has closely-spaced arms (13-1/2-inches outside to outside) that can directly work with many bike frame designs, even beach cruisers like yours. You can simply measure your bike to see if those arms would fit in the space between the bike's top tube and the small stabilizer under it, or alternately, with one arm in...

  • Sounds like you are looking for a way to carry a couple bikes and some additional cargo in a cargo carrier. We have the perfect solution for that. Check out the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform 2 Bike Rack w/Cargo Carrier # HR1450-85. This is a 2 bike platform rack that has a cargo carrier mounted behind it. Your vehicle will need to have a 2 inch hitch installed on it though. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well.

  • Good news, I do have a great replacement hitch pin for the Hollywood Traveler Rack # HR8000. Hollywood Rack offers an anti-rattle and cable lock combo # HRLHPTC. This will allow you to lock your rack to the vehicle and your bikes to the rack for added security. Plus both locks are keyed alike for easy removal.

  • What you would need is the RV Bumper Bike Rack part # S80605 to attach to your 4 inch bumper. Since the two sections of the rack can be spaced wherever needed on the bumper you would just need to space the rack so that the wheels of your tandem bike line up.

  • If the mountain bike does not have a horizontal top tube then it would require the use of an adapter bar like part # UB01 to provide a horizontal attachment tube for the Kuat Beta part # B202-2 to attach to. The adapter attaches to the seat post and the steering stem to provide the attachment point. I looked up pictures to see examples of Kona and Giant mountain bikes and some of them had top tubes that wouldn't require an adapter as they were basically horizontal, but several...

  • The two racks Thule Vertex # TH9031 and Yakima SwingDaddy # Y02464 you referenced are very similar, but they have a few differences. Although they weigh about the same, the Thule Vertex, part # TH9031XT, has a higher weight capacity than the Yakima SwingDaddy, part # Y02464. The Vertex can carry 150 pounds, while the SwingDaddy can handle 140 pounds. Both Thule Vertex and Yakima SwingDaddy will work with 2-inch trailer hitch receivers. The Thule is USA made. The Vertex has...

  • The bike rack I recommend putting on your 2014 Toyota 4Runner is the Thule EasyFold, # TH9032. This is a rack specifically designed for heavier bikes like the Electra Townies you just purchased, and has a weight capacity of 65 lbs per bike. It also has an extendable ramp so you don't have to lift nearly 60 pounds each time you want to load the rack. There are ratcheting straps which secure your wheels to the rack, and adjustable clamps to grasp the frame of the step-over bike,...

  • The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part # S64665, does have tilting upright masts to allow hatch access when not loaded with bikes but the main horizontal structure can drop only to a level position (as with bikes loaded and going down the road). It does not tilt down below the level position. With your four bikes loaded you will not be able to open your rear hatch. A better option for rear hatch access is the Yakima HoldUp 2-bike carrier # Y02443 partnered...

  • To determine if the Pro Series Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 would clear the rear spare of your 2013 Toyota 4Runner you need to take one simple measurement. You need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the spare tire. If that measurement is less than 8 inches the # 63124 would work for you as this rack has a distance of 8 inches from the center of its pin hole to the upright bar of the rack. For a similar bike rack with more clearance...

  • For your 2012 Toyota 4Runner, the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches, # TH9031XT, that you referenced is a quality bike rack that will work well with your bikes and vehicle. However, many of our customers have complained about the weight of the rack when fully loaded and swung out away from the vehicle. The main complaint is with these types of racks pushing then back into position when loaded with bikes can be a difficult. I recommend Softride Element Parallelogram...

  • The upright mast of the Detail K2 part # K2BCR490 can tilt forward and back slightly when you remove the lower pin. It would not fold all the way down in either direction though as the pin that stops it from falling all the way back also prevents it from going fully in the opposite direction.

  • All of the Thule Apex hitch bike racks, parts # TH9025, # TH9026 and # TH9027, feature built-in anti-rattle devices that are integrated into their shanks. The Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, part # BX88224, that fits 2-inch hitches like the one on your 4Runner, will not work with these bike carriers but it will do a superb job of stabilizing, both vertically and horizontally, the shank of a ball mount like # 2923 or that of a compatible bike rack like # S64152-2.

  • We do indeed have trunk-mount style 2-bike racks confirmed as a fit on your 2011 Toyota 4Runner and you can see all of them by clicking on the included link. For a rack that will gently transport your bikes and also be easier to install and remove from the 4Runner I suggest the Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack # TH9001PRO. This rack offers advanced design and excellent build quality. Among its included features are built-in locks for the rack itself and for your two loaded bikes,...

  • The best solution is going to be the T2 Pro part # TH9034xt. It's a platform bike rack that will only touch your bikes at the tires and when you are ready you can have the extension piece part # TH9036xt installed on it and it would be converted to a 4 bike rack. This will basically give you the nicest bike rack setup on the market that I know would be your best option for a 1,000 mile road trip. I attached a couple review videos for both products for you to check out as well.

  • Yes, the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier # TH9028XT that you referenced will work on your 2010 Toyota 4Runner. I wish we had a video that showed this rack being demoed on your vehicle but we have not made one yet. I did attach a video of this rack being demoed on a similar vehicle for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT to provide...

  • In order to determine if this Kuat NV 2 Bike rack, part # NV22G, will work on your 2008 Toyota 4Runner, you will need to take one simple measurement on your vehicle. You will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin on your 4Runner out to the furthest point out on your bumper. If that measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches, then the bike rack will fit with the rack in the down position. If the measurement is less than 7 inches, then it will fit with the...

  • The Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9028XT, offers some of the same great features as the #TH934XTR including the anti sway cradles, folding arms, and tilting mast. The Thule Parkway, # TH958, is another good option. A bit more economical than the Vertex but still offers the tilting feature. The Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR, is loaded with features and such a great value that it would be my personal choice even if I was only planning to carrying 2 bikes. It is recommended...

  • The Thule Vertex # TH9030XT does not feature an eye ring to run a cable lock like part # TH538XT through. In all but extreme cases, securing all four bikes together and making a wrap or two around the mast of the carrier would offer sufficient deterrence against theft. Keep in mind that the purpose of a lock is to keep honest folks honest. A determined thief will get what they want despite any precautions taken. The idea is to make the crook move on to easier pickings.

  • Yes, as long as your 2007 Toyota 4 Runner has a receiver hitch installed at the rear of the vehicle the Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches - Tilting - Hitch Mount, item # TH934XTR will work on your vehicle. There is 11-7/8 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar on the carrier so that should be plenty to clear the rear bumper of your vehicle. If you have added a rear mounted spare tire on your vehicle...
